Snowmobiling Information

Download the Grand Rapids and Itasca County area snowmobile map.

Grand Rapids is known for their trails. Snowmobilers love the Grand Rapids area – and it’s no surprise. As the start of the famed Taconite Trail and the home to over 1,000 miles of groomed trails within our county borders, we have been a snowmobiler’s favorite for decades. If the wooded trails aren’t enough, Itasca County also has over 1,000 area lakes for your riding and winter fishing enjoyment.

The Grand Rapids area is blessed with public lands and mixed pine and hardwood forests. Along the trails you are likely to see an abundance of wildlife and scenic vistas. White tail deer and owls are common sights in this area.

Our famous Taconite Trail is a beautiful 147 mile long trail past many of the Iron Range towns from Grand Rapids to Ely. The wide variety of club trails that intersect the Taconite Trail offer many different loop options for new adventures each day of your Grand Rapids vacation.
